Forecast Last Updated at Monday, June 27, 2016 at 6:33PM

Needed Rainfall

Showers and storms will be most numerous across the region this evening. Some locations will see locally very heavy rain. Later this evening the activity will be less intense and less widespread; however, a chance for a shower or t-shower will continue through the night. After tomorrow morning, rain chances diminish rapidly for the remainder of the workweek. Perhaps our next better opportunity for some rain will come over the 4th of July holiday weekend. Temperatures this week won’t be quite as a hot as last week.

Ray continues to blog periodically in the wake of Relay with Ray. Ray added a new blog Wednesday, an interview with Don Lister, the only other person to have run the Blue Ridge Parkway in consecutive days.

Forecast Discussion

A cold front is headed our way, and won’t fully pass south/east of the local area until Tuesday night. While most of what we get will be this evening, we’ll hold onto a chance for showers on Tuesday until the front settles to our south. Merging outflow boundaries have resulted in some big thunderstorms with very heavy rain this evening, a trend that is expected to weaken after sunset.

High pressure will build into the Foothills for the Wednesday through Friday timeframe. While the chance for a pop-up PM shower or thundershower is not zero, it’s not worth mentioning in the forecast at this time. Temperatures will be fairly typical for the end of June/beginning of July.

By Independence Day weekend, we’ll be following the progress of the next cold front that is scheduled to settle into the Carolinas toward Sunday and Monday. As the front nears, so does our potential for more showers and thunderstorms.
